Victor LaGamma Trio with MJ Territo


Friday, May 8, 2015
7:00 pm - 10:30 pm


On Friday, May 8th the Victor LaGamma Trio returns to the main dining room at Alvin & Friends with pianist/composer Victor La Gamma, bassist Dylan La Gamma and vibraphonist Eric Katz performing a mix of original compositions and newly arranged standards from the American song book. With a special guest appearance by singer MJ Territo. A writer and lyricist, MJ performs regularly in clubs and other venues throughout the tri-state area and is a Teaching Artist for ArtsWestchester. Wilfred Sostre of Jazz Times praised her “coolness of phrasing” and observed “Territo does not sound like any other female jazz singer. Her phrasing and style reminds me more of male singers, like Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett than Holiday or Ella.” Victor La Gamma has been performing in the New York and Westchester areas for the last 35 years. His recent CD release, ‘Bits and Pieces’, incorporates many styles of jazz composition and performance and includes his son, bassist Dylan La Gamma, who is a jazz ensemble director at Fordham Prep. The third member of the trio is Eric Katz, a music teacher in the Pelham Schools and a graduate of Manhattan School of Music. His melodic doublings on vibes with the piano suggest the bygone days of the George Shearing Quintet. No cover charge but tables are reserved for diners and there is a two-drink minimum at the bar.
